Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.  God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning--the first day.

Dear friend, welcome to “Thinking in the Truth”. Today, I want to share with you God’s Word in Genesis 1:1-5. May we grow together in the Truth.

(1)    The Holy Bible is the Word of God. The Word from the Creator of Universe-God. “ In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”  is the first Scripture in the Holy Bible. It is the first sentence God spoke to his earthly children through His Book. I think that this sentence surpasses all worldly things for human beings. 

(2)    Genesis 1:1, a marvelous scripture in the Holy Bible, let us know that God created the heavens and the earth. Have you thought about how “the heavens” are plural, and how “the earth” is singular?   

 I think that these are the messages God told us, his earthly children, that “the heavens”, being plural, indicates the vastness of the universe. It leads us to imagine his majesty, power, and almightiness. It carries us to a realm of amazement. The earth – the land we live on, being singular, makes it seem that the earth is a very special, tiny, and beautiful land he created for his children. God created them all - the heavens and the earth.

(3)    This Bible verse, the word of God, tells us that God   created  the earth  before he created mankind. How long ago did God create the earth before he created human beings? God did not tell us the exact time, but through the Holy Bible’s first words, he told us it was “In the beginning” 

(4)    Our heavenly Father  is the creator of the universe  . His wisdoms and mysteries are far beyond our imagination, knowledge, and understanding. Human beings can not fathom God’s wisdom and mysteries. However, from today’s and the future’s learning through the Holy Bible, we will certainly realize the fact that our heavenly Father has prepared a peaceful and beautiful home - the earth for human beings, by his long, wide, high, and deep love. We, God’s children, should give him all the thanks and praise for what he did for us!

(5)    In the Scripture of Holy Bible, there is a word “Now” and it follows with several words to  describe the status and appearance of the earth which are: formless, empty, and darkness. These words tell us that in the beginning, the earth was not suited for human life. From this point, God gradually lead us to his big and amazing project. This Bible verse is very clear and wonderful and let us know the earliest history of the earth on which we live on.  “The Spirit of God was hovering over the waters” seems to tell us that God the Holy Spirit was hovering above the earth to do the on-site visits, inspections, investigations, planning, and preparations for the forthcoming big and amazing projects of creation on this planet, in order to give human beings a beautiful, peaceful, and comfortable home to live on. It’s a very vivid, lively, and beautiful description.

(6)    “God said” is a very short sentence, but it is the most powerful Word in the Holy Bible that tells us the power,

 almightiness, and ultimate authority of God’s Word. His Word completes everything. He said “let there be light”, and there was light.

(7)    The Holy Bible is Word of God. If you want to know what God says to human beings, the Holy

 Bible is the answer. The Holy Bible will open the letters which came from our heavenly Father through God’s chosen prophets and the disciples of Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy Bible is a very precious book worth reading in our lifetime and future generations.

(8)    From the Scripture, we know that the first order God made was “Let there be light”. This message told us that the light came from God and that God is the only true light and source of light, either physical light or spiritual light.

Every creation is made by God’s Word. Whatever he said in the Holy Bible, he will fulfill. So, the more you know the Holy Bible, the more you will understand God’s will. Nothing is more  important than God’s will.

(9)    On the first day, God created light for the earth. The earth no longer stood in formlessness, emptiness, and darkness. Since the light shone on the earth, the endless darkness was terminated from this planet; there was morning, and a message of hope arose on the earth.

(10) God created light for the earth before he created anything else. This is a very important message that let us know how important the light is! Human beings’ lives are the same as the earth. We need true light shining on our hearts to drive out the hopelessness, formlessness, emptiness, and darkness. The true light is God. He is light! Once our hearts are touched by God’s light (the Truth), our lives will be totally changed; our lives will no longer stay walking in death.

(11) God is the Spirit (John 4:24). The Word of God in the Holy Bible has a deep and profound spiritual meaning. Even though the Word talks about things in the physical realm, we need to seek it’s deep meaning in the spiritual realm. Through prayer with genuine hearts, God will reveal the deep meanings and teachings to us. The hidden treasure in the Holy Bible will shines upon our hearts and lead us to the Truth.

(12) I suggest you discover one person’s life: the scientist Newton, to see how he walked with God and sought God’s wisdom, and how he explored the beautiful and perfect design of the universe by God’s almighty hands.

      We have the same loving God as Newton. May God show his beautiful plan on our lives through his mercy, grace, and everlasting love.


God is Love (1 John 4:16)
